Interviews in Moses Lake

Today we started another round of interviews.  We’ll be on the road the next couple of weeks, visiting missionaries.  This week we’re staying in Royal City, where we can more easily get to missionaries in the Moses Lake and Othello Zones.  this morning we were in Moses Lake bright and early.  The weather has been cold and crisp this week.  Winter has tried to come back to us and we all want it to be Spring!

My question for everyone this time is “What is your best advice for a new missionary?”
